"She must not be forgotten." When those words, along with Final Fantasy XIII protagonist Lightning's artistic image, were sent out to Square-Enix Ultimate members, many just assumed Nomura was referring to the leading lady's inclusion in the upcoming Dissidia 012: Duodecim Final Fantasy .
But others took this piece of evidence, combined it with other vague indications, and came to the conclusion that Square-Enix might be working on a sequel to FFXIII. And the latest update actually supports the latter theory, as a new domain name has been registered by Square-Enix and it's pretty self-explanatory: "finalfantasy13-2game.com." This domain was filed on Monday, January 11 and it has been registered by "Corporation Service Company," who have also registered domains for other titles from the publisher, including Front Mission Evolved , Nier , and the upcoming Mindjack . The Unofficial Final Fantasy Site also notes that much of the FFXIII design team worked on the last sequel in the series, Final Fantasy X-2 , so maybe they're into trying another follow-up. And next week, we've got the Square-Enix First Production Department Premiere, so perhaps they'll make an announcement then. Either way, this is bound to create a ton of discussion and argument; do you even want FFXIII-2…?
Lastly, this comes hot on the heels of our editorial, Final Fantasy XIII-2: What We Want . Odd, yes. Did we know something…? …nah. Just good timing, it seems.
